I don't want to rain on your parade...

so I don't think I'll be updating the blog much.

I am going through some rough, rough times at home and I have nothing positive to share with you.

I know I read the blogs I do, cause they fill me with inspiration and they let me get to know their authors a little better.

Right now, I have nothing inspiring or happy to put out in the world.

I am tired, I am very disappointed with my self and with the choices I have made.

I wish I could back in time and think twice...

I no longer see a person I can be proud of when I look in the mirror, and I don't have the will power or the strength and motivation to do anything about it.

I am bracing myself for a fight, and I am hoping against hope that I come out with as little scars as possible. Wish me luck...

That's all I have.

This is what I call happy mail.

I went to breakfast with my dear, dear friend Vanessa today.

She arrived carrying a big bunch of envelopes tied up with a beautiful hot pink bow, and they were all for me!

I really had to control my self to keep from making a scene in the middle of the Original Pancake House...

They were all from my cyber pals. Vanessa got in touch with them and they all sent me the most beautiful cards and gifts from when Natalia was in the hospital a couple of months ago.

I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly good that made me feel. Knowing I can call such an amazing group of women my friends, is just too much.

I read and LOVED every one of the cards. All full of prayers and good thoughts for Natalia and for me, during what was one of the hardest times in my life.

I hadn't been able to see Vane until now, so it was a great surprise to get them.

Nati and I played with the super cool gifts Laura sent her (Thank you!!!!) and we had a blast.
She also watched the DVD Vane got her, and hasn't let go of her Care Bear all afternoon :)

She got glitter glue, stickers, happy faces, playing cards... A whole bunch of gifts!!

Even I got some goodies from my sweet Joanne.

Se loved me reading all the cards to her, and she got so excited to be getting some mail too.

These past two years have been really tough for me in many ways. I would not have been able to go through it all if I didn't have the amazing support of all my friends.

You all mean the world to me and I LOVE YOU.

More eye candy...

I got mine in the mail a few days ago and I am in love!!

May's kit by Cupcake Scrapshop is just fabulous. Lots of great papers, the ribbon is to die for and the colors are just perfect for Spring.

Isn't it beautiful????

It's available on May 1st at 12 noon.

Off to scrap some more...

Random Wednesday

My gorgeous Natush with all the great gifts my friend Gilda sent her (along with my beloved Fiskars Treading Water punch!!!!!). She was so happy and excited to be getting stuff in the mail.

She took all her goodies and staged them on my bed like this and asked me to take her pic.
She is a sweetie pie!!

Thank you so much, Gilda!!!!

I finally got my Making Memories desktop organizer and I LOVE it. My desk is free of clutter and I have all this free space to create.
It holds tons of stuff, right there where you can see it while you're using it, but out of the way.

Of course, my desk is a mess right now, cause I am making cards. I am on a card kick and lovin' it.

Another HUGE score I got over the weekend, was the infamous Martha Stewart embossed scalloped edge punch.
It was a Christmas release and flew off the shelves before I could get one.
Well, this past weekend, my scrap pals and I went to a scrap store and I found one!!!! I could not believe my eyes. SCORE!!!

I found this great kit while reading Maria Grace's blog. I LOVED what she had done with it and I just had to have it.

Then I saw the mini Ali created and oh, am I glad I got it.

Check it out. It is so cool and chock full of delish goodies.
I am not a big fan of CK's kits but this one, I loved.

That's all the randomness I have for y'all today.

Go and enjoy the day.

How cool is this?!?!?!?

The uber talented Nora Griffin had a RAK on her blog for a gorgeous necklace.
I almost never win, but I entered anyway cause the necklace had a special meaning to me, and I just LOVE her!

Ever since I lost Milagros, my first baby girl, I have always felt that she is right here with me whenever I see a beautiful tree. I don't know why...

So, when I saw the tree necklace I thought it would be a really cool thing to have.
Well, I won!! How amazing is that?

Thank you so much, Nora. I will wear and treasure it :)

I'm off to take Nati to school and come back home to start working on LOTS of new pieces for Handmade by ANILU!!

Oh my gods!!!! How great was Galactica!?!?!?!
I really hope some of my dear blog pals are fans, cause I just have to talk it out.

My head is spinning from the season premiere. What are your thoughts? Theories? Predictions?

Meet my new boy friend!!

I have a serious crush on Michael Johns. BIG time crush. If there's justice in this world, he will definitely win American Idol.

That Dolly Parton song he sang this week, made me weak in the knees.

Feast your eyes and ears on this little gem...

I know I have been "Miss lazy pants" all this week but I have Spring cleaning fever so I have been working a lot here at home.

Plus, I have been feeling down and sad too :(

I'll be back soon.
